    @andreizm hitting me with a super generous LIF box for almost guessing the right amount of pages in this thread. Handful of more posts ought to do it!

    If it wasn't for dry January, my glass would be full right now. Unfortunately, it will have to wait another couple weeks, but I'm super excited to dig into all these. All new ticks. The port and madeira barrel aged stout, the saison with galaxy and mosaic, and the choc maple gingerbread sound especially unique and interesting. Can't wait, thank you!!!!

    The trees are down and Christmas is officially over, but the 6 Days of Xmas keep on giving! I’ve forgotten what day I’m on now, but am currently enjoying this yuletide treat from @lateralusbeer. :beers:

    Got home from work today and found a very delayed (thanks USPS.....) second box finally arrived from @Snrubnivek ! He'd already reached out to me - I'm doing dry january and unfortunately it's mostly hoppy stuff that was fresh when he sent it early December, but postal delays pushed it back quite a bit, so they won't be as fresh when I can finally start consuming on the 1st. Either way, I'm super excited for some more beers to try, even if they may not be hyper-fresh. Didn't take an unboxing pic, but here's them sitting in my beer fridge ready to go...

    Thanks again for an awesome 6 days of 2 beers + extras! My local shop is probably wondering where I've been the last month and a half.....

    I loved that Jingle Crush. DDH Ghost in the Machine isn’t too shabby either — although not as good as the OG, right @Snrubnivek?

    Need to double check, but I think this may be the last of the six (30?) days. Thanks, @lateralusbeer. Will get a kill shot together soon. :beers:

    Due to postal delays, my main 6dox box didn’t arrive until about a week ago — but with box after box of “extras,” @lateralusbeer kept me swimming in beer throughout nonetheless. Just poured the final glass from the final bottle, with a little nip added to liven things up. Kill shot is above.

    The rye barrel barleywine and the Hardywood Hoax were probably my favorites. Thanks for all these, Ryan. Much appreciated. Have a great 2021, y’all. :beers:

    Huge apologies to @Coorsy for the lack of posts this week. We were having floors installed all over the house and it was madness here. Sorry Corey!

    [​IMG]
    Most apple Brandy forward beer I have ever had. Got some cinnamon and chocolate in there as well. Loved this beer, and I was pretty sure this was the local beer from Prairie I have seen others post.
    [​IMG]
    Boom! This one was really excellent.

    Day 9B brought this one:

    Based on bottle size, the glass Corey sent and my TH ticks, I guessed this one right of the bat. Always glad to try new TH beers and this was another good one. Thanks for an awesome night of stouts Corey!

    Day 10 from @Coorsy:[​IMG]

    New right away it was HF and man was it great. Oak barrel for sure with some light funk and great flavor.

    [​IMG]
    2017 oak puncheon barrels! Had a newer version of this last year and this one was just as good, if not better. Think the time helped mellow the barrel just a tad and made the beer shine a but more. Enjoyed this one for a good long time, thanks Corey!

    Days 11 and 12 from @Coorsy were both easy guesses and excellent beers:

    I had tried the regular version once before, but man I didn't remember just how much awesome vanilla flavor they had packed into that one. The BA version on day 12 was such a treat. Still huge vanilla, but with some oak/bourbon/caramel. This beer was fun to sip on for a couple hours. Thanks Corey!

    This was a ton of fun to drink and a bunch of stuff right up my alley. Had a great 18 days of drinking, and a huge thanks to Corey for these ones. Can't wait until next year!

    Wanted to give a shoutout to Dave or whoever came up with the format of two different shippers for the 12 dox this year. I think it had a number of distinct advantages over the single sender approach, but mostly an opportunity to try some brews from more than one local area. Looking forward to next year already!

    Popping in for what's beginning to look like my yearly reminder to check in on @Dave_Treat and see if he will return to run this for 2021. I will again extend the offer to run it if he's not around.
